    Unfortunately Eike, in that last batch you have two fakes and another I wonder about: the Pi E. Btl. is a common fake font, shown in my thread on fake fonts, and you can see the halo around the letters showing it was an already corroded blank that was stamped over; the St Kp Gren Btl 48 is too a known bad font and the text itself is weird as well (St.Kp. is Stammkompanie and that only belongs to Ersatz units); and the Polizei Panzergrenaider Regiment 2 is also a common bad font I'm afraid.

    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Matt you have confirmed my fears about the St Kp Gren Btl 48 tag , have you ever seen any numbered Btl tag before ?

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    No, that's the other obvious problem- Bataillone as subunits of Regimenter were numbered with Roman Numerals; only Ersatz-Bataillone, because they were main units themselves, not subunits, received Arabic numbers.

    The 48th ss battalion disk I bought from a dealer, I was told it was part of the 23rd ss division Nederland. I should have done my homework at the time but i believed the guy.

    Funny I looked up all three disks matt called out and this is where they came from
    http://ww2germanmilitaria.com/IDDogTags1.asp
    Dealer in Canada. I bought them 2 or 3 years ago but buyer beware. Most of the rest of those disks are from Russia, the Northern area primarily with a couple from Kiev. Sorry to post bad ones here guys it is not my intention to decieve anyone.

    I really should post the rest of my ss tags... this is only about 1/3 of them and my average is not so good.

    Do definitely post them- hopefully we can improve your average.

    That dealer's got a LOT of fakes for sale- many that same bad font; I feel bad for the guy- most dealers simply don't know any better so buy this junk and pass it on without ever realizing it's garbage.
